Embattled Rep. Duncan Hunter Fails To Get Endorsement From Local GOP Chapter

The San Diego Republican Party declined to endorse indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) on Monday. During a conference in San Diego, Hunter tried–and apparently failed–to convince the party that he was their best shot at winning California’s 50th District despite being indicted on criminal charges for alleged campaign finance fraud. “We require a 2/3 threshold for an endorsement and no candidate reached that threshold,” GOP chair Tony Krvaric told TPM. Hunter is fighting off three other Republi...

Campo California is for sale

Real estate prices in California are notoriously high, but $3 million for a town is an absolute steal. Back in 1994, the town of Campo in Southern California was put on sale for $1.74 million, which today inflates to around $3 million. Now, Campo is back on the market. The historic 16-acre village, about an hour away from San Diego, is being sold by John Ray, a Las Vegas investor who is unloading many of his properties as he ages. Campo was the home of the Buffalo Soldiers, the only all Afri...

The first-ever mandatory California drug price report reveals Big Pharma's farcical price-gouging

In 2017, California passed a state law mandating disclosure of wholesale drug prices, something the Big Pharma companies fought tooth and nail. Now, the first of those disclosures has taken place, and it reveals spectacular levels of price-gouging from the pharmaceutical industry's greediest monopolists: an overall rise of 25.8% in the median drug price since 2017. But the median obscures the incredible increases in the prices at the top end: generic liquid Prozac went up by 667%, generic A...

Rare 'itinerant breeding' behavior revealed in California bird

Only two bird species have ever been shown to undertake what scientists call 'itinerant breeding': nesting in one area, migrating to another region, and nesting again there within the same year, to take advantage of shifting food resources. However, new research provides strong evidence of this rare behavior in a third bird -- the Phainopepla, a unique bird found in the southwestern US and the northernmost member of an otherwise tropical family.

California law assumes that any wealth created during a marriage is community property, which should be split equally in a divorce. That's alarming not just for young entrepreneurs but also their investors. Fortunately, a well-written prenup is a safeguard against post-divorce havoc, which is why ...
